Do you want to live in a country where you could be put to death for saying what you think about Islam? Or about Catholicism? Or any other religion?
FP: What would you say to those who think this scenario is impossible in terms of America and the West?
Geller: Consider this: What I am suggesting as a consequence of Sharia is happening right now in the world in places where Islamic law reigns supreme. Right now a woman is in prison in Pakistan and awaiting death for blasphemy. This is Islamic law, and this is the Islamic law that Muslims want to bring to the West.
The very idea that truthful speech about Islamic supremacism and jihad could be categorized as hate speech and/or criminalized is the equivalent of shredding the Constitution. The fundamental principle of free speech is the protection of all speech, not just speech we like. Because who decides what’s good and what’s forbidden? CAIR? The United Nations? The Organization of Islamic Cooperation?
That is precisely the role that CAIR and the OIC would like to play in American society. We cannot and will not allow them to do so because free speech is the line in the sand. Once free men have lost that basic human freedom, they have no other recourse but to resort to violence.
FP: Okay, so how does the book equip people to fight back?
Geller: Stop the Islamization of America explains why what is happening is happening, and how you must fight it. It is an action plan for the preservation of our freedoms enshrined in our Constitution.
Trust me, when you see a giant mosque going up on your tiny tree-lined street, where there are no churches and there are no synagogues and there are no businesses and there are no Muslims, it’s no accident.
And there are ways you can fight back. Do it. Paraphrasing Ayn Rand: The question isn’t who is going to let you, it’s who is going to stop you.
FP: This does sound like what people need. Can you give us some more details?
Geller: Well, Jamie, the book includes a four-step plan to protesting mosques effectively, and an illuminating case study. It also contains a twelve-point plan and much more advice and direction, plus five courses of action that freedom fighters should avoid. It includes direction on how to spot and avoid media traps, and how freedom activists can fight back when charged with “Islamophobia.” There is much more, of course: the shocking details of the high-level agreements that opened the door for the Islamization of America are included in the book, among other startling revelations, including new information about the full extent of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Department of Justice, and its brazen pro-Muslim activities, including its “Monthly Outreach Meetings” with Muslim and Arab groups at the Civil Rights Division.
I’ve also got revelations about the close ties between the Justice Department and the Islamic Society of North America, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, and the Muslim Students Association – all of which are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. I expose the connections of the organizers of the Ground Zero Mosque to the Muslim Brotherhood; how the Justice Department is fighting for Sharia in the U.S.; how public officials in Detroit, New York, San Francisco and elsewhere are kowtowing to Islamic supremacists’ demands to curtail free speech about Islam; Islamic schools that receive public money –
FP: Islamic schools are receiving public money in the U.S.?
Geller: Yes, Jamie, right here in the U.S.
FP: That’s astounding.
Geller: That’s not all. The meat you buy at your local supermarket could be halal – even though it is not labeled or advertised as such. And you can also read in the book about the shocking details of the travesty that is the 9/11 victims memorial: its plans to put the unidentified remains of 9/11 victims seven stories underground inside a museum that charges admission — and which will include lavish profiles (above ground, of course) of the 9/11 hijackers. Then there is the American Bar Association’s coverup of its work to resist anti-Sharia initiatives. Also, my colleague Robert Spencer and I have developed AFDI’s new Threats to Freedom Index, identifying the groups that are the greatest enemies of the freedom of speech and other freedoms.
FP: That is much needed. Can you tell us what groups are on the list?
Geller: CAIR and the SPLC certainly are, along with the Center for American Progress. But to find out the rest, you’ll have to get the book.
FP: Thank you for joining us, Pamela Geller.
We encourage all our readers to get their hands on Stop the Islamization of America!
